    Georges Andre's Olympic Achievements

    Georges Andre made his Olympic debut in London 1928, claiming the silver medal in the high jump with a 1.88m leap. In 1912, he participated in six different events but his results weren't good. Eight years later, he received the 4x400m relay bronze medal in Antwerp. At his forth Olympics in his hometown of Paris, Georges took the Athletes' Oath on behalf of all the athletes.

The theme of London 2012 was "Inspire a Generation" and this transformation was built around a Games that created opportunities across sport, education, culture, volunteering and sustainability. The London Games took place in some remarkable new venues. But just like the Richmond Oval in Vancouver, they haven’t simply been built for Games-time impact, but for legacy as well. And afterwards, they’ll be modified to meet the needs of the local communities and athletes long into the future.
